    Here's a picture of the one I made a couple years ago. I have fabric for another and will get started on it soon. I just love the way these go together and how different each one looks.

    I love it. That is the next quilt that I plan on doing. So is it hard to do?

    That is one of the prettiest OBW's I've seen. It truly does look like a garden. Do you have some of the original fabric you can show us?

    The pattern itself is very easy. The part that takes the longest is arranging the blocks and figuring out where they look the best. I literally sat across the room from my design wall with a laser light. My hubby and daughter were standing by the design wall, and I would use the laser to point to blocks I wanted moved, and then point to where I wanted them moved; I got a better perspective that way, as it was just too hard to see the best placement from up close.

    That is absolutely perfect fabric for an OBW. Do you know the name & maker? I'm already to do a search if you do! LOL

    This pattern actually consists of rows of triangles. The book is called "One Block Wonders," and she has at least one more called "One Block Wonders Encore!," which I haven't gotten yet.

    I honestly have no idea. I bought it at a local Hancock's at least 2, if not 3, years ago.

    OMG! That is so beautiful...looks like a Monet painting.
    I love it! I havent tried the OBW but its on my list. I think that is one of the prettiest that I have seen. Very inspirational!

    I just have to say... your placement of the blocks is truly what makes it so wonderful (for me anyway) I like the blocks that have the smaller orangy red centers that look like individual flowers at the top... and then it goes into the blend in the bottom that looks like a real garden area! Just fantastic!

    What an ingenious way to lay out your blocks. Would never have thought of that. Wonder if my husband and daughter would be so cooperative.

    Where those water color fabrics ? The way the quilt turned out it looks like it may be. It is just beautiful.

    This pattern actually consists of rows of triangles. The book is called "One Block Wonders," and she has at least one more called "One Block Wonders Encore!," which I haven't gotten yet.
    And there is a third "One Block Wonders Cubed".
    I've made nine of them so far, and about to finish off the latest.
    They are all posted in the Virtual Section.

    I'd like to know how much fabric one buys to make a OBW like this? It is stunning and I can't wait to try it.

    I love the way you graduated the colors...it looks like a flower garden! Great work. I want to do one but haven't found the right fabric yet. I seem to look at every new fabric with that in mind. The one I really would like to use, I don't have enough of..... ;-)

    You'd have to get the book and find out how many repeats you need, which also depends on what size quilt you want to make. Mine is more suited to a wall hanging, which is what I was aiming for, but I can't remember the amount of yardage I bought and don't know where the book is at the moment :)
